I'm new to Renoise, testing it since some days!
Not sure if its the product for me (making glitch/break/noisecore), so I'm asking some question to you before buying it
1 - Is it possible to random Pattern Editor? Such as Note number, KEY, Vol, FX (even better considering the ones loaded and available, not random values) and such?
2 - Can the "Maybe Trigger = Y" be seeded? So every time I play a random sequence, it play the same random sequence?
3 - Is it possible to Restart LFO when project start? Or when I trigger the sample in Redux? It seems its only "free" and not retrigger...
4 - For "random LFO", as above, its possible to have "seeded" random? So LFO random the same every cycle?
Thanks to everybody
1. You can do it with the drop-in tool VDPro, or just smash the keyboard (rhythmically).
All lines (from top to bottom in time) can contain a value to enter.
With the Advanced Editor functions (hidden on the right top of the main pattern entry window) you can manipulate values.
Some useful keyboard shortcuts:
Set Lines To Skip: CTRL 1 CTRL 2 up to CTRL 9 and CTRL + and CTRL - above the character keys
Set Octave: NumPad / and NumPad *
Select Granular: ALT SHIFT CURSOR
Select: SHIFT CURSOR
Cut: CTRL X
Copy: CTRL C
Repeat-paste: CTRL P
Interpolate between: CTRL i
Interpolate logarithmically between: CTRL L
A - You can create Phrases and assign these to a note height.
-You can use the G effect command for "glided" transitions,
- and the S command for (Sample Slice) or (Offset) to manipulate the starting point of sample(s).
B - in the instrument library of Renoise, there is a "Modulation - Sample-Swapper" instrument.
setting loops of (16, 32. 64 etc) in the first sample,
setting loops with different timing (6. 12. 24.. 5 10 20.. 7, 14, 28..) in the other samples,
assigning a LFO (random or custom) to the Sample Swap macro with a * Instr. Macro device in a track DSP lane
resetting the LFO (select pattern position, right click Reset) on tempo with a Reset pattern effect command,
reset LFO: y8xx where y is the DSP lane device number and xx is the reset Offset or Starting Point in the LFO.
3. resetting the LFO (select pattern position, right click Reset) on tempo with a Reset pattern effect command,
reset LFO: y8xx where y is the DSP lane device number and xx is the reset Offset or Starting Point in the LFO
the LFO has a LPC (lines per cycle) to set how fast it goes.
4. a custom LFO enveloppe allows you to have control over what exact points the LFO hits. this can be any semi-random pattern.
Renoise is a great program. Buying the software has several advantages. Make sure you get to know the demo version well enough.
Happy music making.
